Bad Taxidermy Vol. 1

By on February 1, 2013

Taxidermists are responsible for preserving the animal kingdom through an expert knowledge of anatomy, chemistry and other delicate sciences, as well as the mastery of sewing, sculpture and myriad other skills necessary to bring an the empty skin back to life in all its elegance, beauty and power.

And then there are those who just wing it.

    Priceless. For some reason, this series of pictures struck me as really funny and I couldn’t stop laughing out loud.
